This could be devastating. According to the US Supreme Court public domain no longer exists.

Those are for the films whose copyrights supposedly expired in the United States but remained in force in the country of their origin (because each country has different copyright laws). The rest of the films will still be available, for now.

The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer.
--- Henry Kissinger, New York Times, Oct. 28, 1973

corporation, n. An ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility.
--- Ambrose Bierce

This, sir, is my great objection to the Constitution, that there is no true responsibility---and that the preservation of our liberty depends on the single chance of men being virtuous enough to make laws to punish themselves.
--- Patrick Henry, June 5, 1788 [Henry was one of the anti-Federalists, who wanted to maintain the Articles of Confederation.]
